If you’re feeling the winter blues, then prepare to be transported into a land of tranquil island serenity as you watch this alluring video from Heidi Klein’s Summer 2014 photo shoot in Antigua. 30-year-old American model, Le Call (who I could’ve sworn was Brazilian), moves languidly and dreamily through the video, becoming one with the elements, making every piece of the collection look perfectly sophisticated yet still young and fresh.
This swimwear collection encompasses everything from classic color combinations of navy and white to daring splashes of energetic hot orange and raspberry, inspired by Brazil & Istanbul. Heidi’s signature nautical trend is present, as well as modern geometric prints, exotic snakeskin prints, stripes, and solid muted earth tones, while gold hardware bestows a sense of unspoken opulence and class. But the collection would not complete our gypsy wanderlust souls without the white cotton Seville cover-up, a smidge of white crochet, and the braided/rope strings seen on several two-piece bikinis and dresses! This is one of our favorite Heidi Klein collections to date, because the swimsuit shapes are truly perfect for any woman, and the sun dresses can lend an inner elegance to anyone’s beachside style.
For a fun read, check out the Heidi Klein blog to get some inside deets on this photo shoot, which took place in the gorgeous Jumby Bay, Antigua! (Oh, and pst: you can shop pieces from this collection at our online store.)
As we watch 2013 sail off into the sunset, we are reflecting on some of Ophelia’s best moments throughout the past year. We’ve been to Miami, Brazil, and the mountains; we’ve held three fashion shows; walked the runway at South Walton Fashion Week; earned a title as the #1 place to buy swimwear on 30A by 30A.com; and countless other moments that shine in our memory as being filled with laughter and smiles. :) We just want to thank all of the loyal ladies that shop at Ophelia Swimwear, and continue to help us grow and thrive… We’re looking forward to seeing what 2014 brings, and wishing all of you a sunny and prosperous New Year!
